Two significant returns have helped Barcelona advance of their El Clasico matchup with Real Madrid
Tomorrow night’s high-stakes La Liga match between La Blaugrana and their former rivals takes place at Camp Nou. Xavi’s team presently leads the race for the championship by nine points.
If the home team wins, they will be in position to win the championship for the first time since 2019 and Xavi is predicted to insert Ronald Araujo right away into the starting lineup.
The Uruguayan international will resume his rivalry with Vinicius Junior after missing last weekend’s victory over Athletic Club due to a suspension.
Following an injury setback, Xavi has also called up Spanish forward Ansu Fati, but he will probably serve as an impact replacement.
As Xavi looks to open the same defensive unit that battled to a 1-0 Copa del Rey semifinal first leg victory over Real Madrid at the beginning of March, Marcos Alonso is also expected to play. As the season comes to a close, Barcelona will be looking to end it on a good note.
